Congratulations to all the All-CCIW selections.  Special congratulations to the IWU TITANS receiving these much-deserved honors.  Bauer and the IWU receivers had a great year.  More to come.  Bauer re-writing the IWU record books for his position. 

All best to all the seniors for their future endeavors, post-football.

Good luck to NCC in the playoffs.  Make some noise for the CCIW.

Calvin Fisher is a good player.  Could develop into a top-flight CCIW player.  Go SAGES!  :)

(Yes, MHS '66). 

If you will forgive my posting football on this board, just to mention the MHS Sages playing in the 3A high school semi-finals this weekend, in Monticello.  Two undefeated teams -- Monticello hosting Carlinville.

Thanks for all the background.  I had never seen an "administrative technical."  Given the one point loss, I'm sure some stern conversation took place within Mia Smith's staff. 

It was a great game.  I was surprised how little the Titans used "run and jump" in this game, perhaps indicating that Coach Smith doesn't think she has the personnel to do it well, or that UC was better at ball handling.  UC did guard well, and also guarded well the three point line.  The first half they defended very well, with the Titans figuring it out to some degree in the second half, esp. after Sydney Shanks took over most of the PG duties. 

Titans have tons of talent -- but just need to figure it all out, put it together, and do better at "finishing games."  Rebounding could be an issue.

More of the tough pre-conference schedule upcoming.

I wish NCC well in the playoffs.  Hope they make some noise and have a good long run for the CCIW.

Congrats to the Titans and the coaching staff again for Co-Champions, second year running.  I fun team to watch and support.  Congrats and good wishes to all the seniors.  Bauer and many receivers coming back, though defense will again need some re-tooling.  Good prospects for next season.

Very strange thing at the beginning of the IWU game -- and "administrative technical," as the Titans didn't turn in their starting line-up "on time."  So Chicago shot 2 FTs to start the game, even before the tip off, making one.  IWU loses by 1 -- so Coach Smith must be kicking herself!   Have never ever seen that before -- an "administrative technical."  ?   

Titans basically shot themselves in the foot in this one -- missing those 4 FTs in the last 30-40 seconds of the game. 

I usually don't complain about the zebras, but this game was poorly officiated, IMHO. 

It won't get any easier for the Titans in the next few games.

Yes, a good start for IWU.  Grinding it out, never really in control, but able to pull out the W.

Totally agree with Q about the future, the new players.  Rose didn't play well tonight, surely Bonnett did -- offensively and defensively.  He was everywhere.    Gregoire a sold contribution. 

And, I think Bair will have a good year, backed up by Baker.  But, the most impressive newbie was surely Fr. Matt Leritz and the energizer bunny, never-stop-hustling and causing trouble to the opposition, Grant Wolfe.  Love his energy, his game. 

The season begins on a good note.

IWU goes down by one point to UChicago, in a very exciting game.  The Titans had the game won up 3 with about 40 seconds to play, but missed 4 FTs in that last little bit, to let the Maroons back in.  Titans had trouble getting into their offense in the first half, with very tight, good D by Chicago.  Likewise, UC handled the TITAN pressure pretty well, though the Titans did climb back into this game several times.  I'm convinced that as Munroe and Shanks develop as PGs, the Titans will improve greatly.  Seems to me very hard for Mia to keep Raven Hughes and Kendall Sosa out of the starting line-up, likely then with Shanks as the PG, as others suggested earlier.  Give credit to the Maroons for sticking with it and pulling out this win.  Two very good teams, with early season mistakes and rust.  I'll have to see the box to see which team won the TO and rebounding battles.  But, you won't win many close games if you miss FTs, in the final minute or so.  Tough loss, but perhaps these two teams meet again in March. 

Shanks had an excellent game, I think 21 points.  Titans surely need more rebounding from Merritt and Brovelli. 

On to the next very tough game vs. Wartburg, up in Iowa.

Looks like IWU volleyball plays Aurora tomorrow.  U C lost.  Again at UC, @Ratner.

If IWU - Wash U in soccer tomorrow @ Wash U, another good match-up.  IWU always seems to have some trouble with Wheaton and Wash U, in women's soccer.  We'll see.  Tomorrow is another day.   Stay tuned.

Great of the IWU women volleyball to get past Wash U, a (what?) 7-8 time national champion!  Winning 3-1 today.  All close.

Greg, thanks for the details on the first Q.  I only got to the video stream after it was already 13-0, so didn't see, hear about those early NPU TOs, early scores by the Titans.

Bauer was superb today, and his two big gun receivers both had big days.

I could tell you were holding back on the "running up the score" possibilities.  I'm sure Norm just wants to impress the selection committee, but I doubt it will help or in any way be enough, at 8-2.  Have to rue the first game, losing to UW LX on that last second FG.  We could'of, should'of, would'of been 9-1 had we won that one.  8-2 a good season for sure, Co-Champs of CCIW and all that, but I think pretty certain no bid at 8-2. 

On to basketball, starting right away tomorrow vs. UC at The Shirk.

Thanks, Q.  Hoping the Titans put it all together early on . . . looks like a very strong team. 

Really sorry about Miles Curry.

Looking forward to the opening games at The Shirk tomorrow -- women and men.

IWU Titan volleyball just took down 7-8 time national champions Wash U in the second round of the regional NCAA Volleyball tournament at Ratner.  Probably tomorrow vs. U Chicago for all the marbles, regional championship game.   Great stuff.

Good to see the TITANS football as Co-Champions this year, taking it to NPU 40-13 today.

IWU over NPU 40-13

Congrats to the TITANS and the Coaching Staff, CCIW CO-Champions. 

Total yardage 526
Bauer 431 passing yards and 5 TDs
Healy 166 and 3 TDs
Zigulick 141 receiving yards
Alexander 100 yards rushing.

A great season, Co-Champs, at 8-2.

Now we wait.  A berth unlikely, but we can hope.

P.S.  Great call of the game by Greg Sager, as always,

Good luck, Greg, stay warm.  For that similar reason, I decided not to make the trip up for the game today.  I'll watch/listen from the cozy warmth of Ames Library.

Go TITANS!
